Even though I’m thoroughly enjoying the third season of “American Horror Story”, the second half of “Coven” has been a bit of a letdown. I’m actually a bit surprised we’re already looking at the season finale, and don’t really feel like the overall arc was as shocking as I expected it to be. In retrospect, I’ve never really liked any of the “Horror Story” finales, so maybe it’s just a flaw in the matrix?
Anyways, next Wednesday “American Horror Story: Coven” will conclude with “Seven Wonders”. Check out the low quality promo (it’s super weird that FX never uploads a HD file).
“The time comes for the girls to face the test of the Seven Wonders. The night before, Myrtle serves them one last meal together as equals. It’s time to find the new Supreme, a witch who Cordelia hopes “can lead the way out of an era of strife and chaos, towards repair and rejuvenation.” With the Witch Hunters gone, perhaps they’ll even be able to live in the open. As morning dawns, Madison is feeling vulnerable yet full of steely determination, Queenie struggles to believe she could be the one, Misty is terrified, and a sober Zoe puts on dark lipstick like it’s war paint. The trials begin, and Madison aims snarky barbs at Zoe – followed by more violent intent as the trials go on – while Misty is surprised to find herself giddy at her own successes. But tragedy strikes as the trials go very wrong. Later, as the new Supreme finally rises, she finds herself having to begin her reign by performing a heartbreaking task. And finally, before the Coven can return to strength and prominence, there is one last piece of unfinished business for the new Supreme to attend to.“
